Shoot for the Moon


I like this card but it didn't turn out quite like I wanted. The background is a stamp from unknown that I versamarked and applied powder pigments - then clear embossed the whole thing. Next, I added the inspiration mosaic stamp (from Melanie at Gina K - see posts below to the stamp's link) with gold ep and tried to use the "splatter" technique with a stiff brush to add "star" effect....hmmmm, not sure that worked! Anyway, I re-embossed again with clear ep. The sentiment background is same background stamp but on white paper (which I dropped when heat embossing, peeled it off my pants, and kept heating...hey, time limit thing LOL) but ended up applying clear ep again anyway. Matted sentiment on gold paper which really doesn't show in picture...then gold ribbon and sparkly blue ribbon...will try this again but probably not doing this background stamp again on black paper. Matted the whole thing on night of navy and elegant eggplant - used white mat to break up all the dark colors...shooting for the moon!!! not sure LOL
